The D475A-5E0 crawler dozer from Komatsu is powered by a turbocharged Tier 2 engine, providing a maximum net output of 890 horsepower. Blade capacity for the Semi-U dozer is 35.6 cubic yards; 45 cubic yards for the U dozer. Additional high-tensile strength steel has been incorporated into the front and sides of the blade for increased durability, Komatsu says. The machine also features an updated 8 roller, K-Bogie undercarriage, which reduces vibration felt by the operator while providing increased track on ground. It comes equipped with the VHMS fleet-monitoring system, which sends machine operating information to a secure website for analysis.
